Florida South Central Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

We are located in the center of Little Gasparilla Island approximately 100 yards from the bay and 300 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. (See location map) From our home you can fish, crab, or shrimp off one of two private docks, search the miles of white sand beach for exotic sea shells, surf fish the beautiful waters of the gulf, or just relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach that Little Gasparilla Island is famous for.

Access to the island is by your own boat or there is a private water taxi available at a reasonable rate. This lack of a bridge makes LGI unique and adds to it's relaxed atmosphere. There are no paved streets only sand roads with the main mode of transportation golf carts and foot power.

We built this home for our family to use and it has worked perfectly for us and will for you too. There are 4 bedrooms all with king size beds(several can be separated into 2 ex-long twins) with 2 full baths and 2 half baths. There are porches on front and back and 2 decks off the second floor bedrooms. The living area is very open so everyone can be together whether cooking dinner or watching TV.

The house has everything you need to have a great vacation. From a kitchen complete with all appliances, pots and pans, and a complete selection of spices to beach chairs for relaxing on the beautiful white sand beach. Our house has it all!!

Downstairs is another large deck for relaxing and a large outside shower with hot and cold water.

If you want to rent a golf cart while you are on the island call LGI Carts at 941-815-7554.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March & could not have been happier. We've stayed on the other end of LGI before and much preferred this area. The docks are in great condition and the neighbors were very friendly & helpful when we arrived! We stayed here with a total of 6 adults & 5 children (all under 6) and had plenty of space. In fact, one of the other families we brought to the house liked it so much they ended up renting it again in June! The house was well equipped and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We really enjoyed using the golf cart and would highly recommend renting it while you are there!

Fantastic Florida family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are already talking about our next trip! The location was ideal and the house was beautiful. It's not easy to please ages ranging from 5-75 but this was just what the doctor ordered. Fishing, beach combing, exploring with a beautiful spacious home to retreat to. The owners were very quick to communicate and accommodate. My first response was the home was nicer in person than even the pics showed. Conveniently located for everything you need! Thanks for blessing our family.

The house was great and very clean.

There was plenty of room for all 10 of us. We all stated we would come back and stay again! The house was not to far from the dock which was great. We had a wonderful time!

Perfect vacation spot to spend quality time with your family!

  • 4 of 5

Housing accommodations were perfect for our family of 8 and neighboring friends who joined us often for evening meals. Everything is provided for your stay - from a spacious kitchen, beach towels and chairs, grills, clean spacious bedrooms, etc. WE even enjoyed homemade icecream with the icecream machine provided. The owners have thought of so many perks for your family to enjoy the island free of worries. Pack a bag with a couple of changes of clothes and bathing suits - and enjoy the family vacation!

Property was very nice and great for my family

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house inside was great , very nice , a lot of space , we were a family of 12 and fit perfect , beach was about 8 min walk, the pier to fish was about 8 min walk to.... Only issue is the mosquitos, all day everyday and they bite all over... The place was muddy but that's because we went on a rainy weekend.. So check the weather... The house did have everything we needed inside.... Although the golf carts had messed up couple days before our trip so we should have gotten a discount and the owner seems to not really care about that.. On the island u definitely need a golf cart and we didn't have that it was horrible...the place to rent golf carts apparently weren't renting them out because of the weather.... On the way to the island my family and I got alittle lost so I gave the owner a call and he didn't seem very nice over the phone... The taxi boat also wasn't very friendly ... We needed to get a taxi to head out to publix because we ran out of things to drink and the cab driver went from $10 there and $10 back to $40 there and $40 back... Why? I don't know but he tried to charged us $80 just to get off the island to make a quick store run .... Other then those few things the house was indeed very nice and I would go back just more prepared
